You have been very frustrated about the already setup PIC programmer, and wish that you can have an easier to have a PIC programmer, which can be re-programmed easily?
Instead of complaint about the matter, it is better to DIY a sophisticated PIC-Programmer for your own use…
The PIC-Programmer that you are going to develop was a modification of a JDM-Programmer. This mean you have to connect the PIC-programmer with the serial com port of your computer! Since this device don’t even need any additional external power supply, thus you’ll save a lot of money here.
Ok, you must be wondered that what types of PIC microcontrollers and EEPROM’s you should use in this project. Well, since there is no any restriction for the PIC microcontrollers and EEPROM, you can use this PIC-burner for PIC12C50x, PIC12F62x, PIC16Fxx, PIC16F62x and EEPROM 24Cxx.
Compared with the other projects, this PIC-programmer is regarding as one of the easy to build and compact electronics project. The three LEDs on the board are used to indicate the state of the burning process. The signal for each light is different, which as:
- Red LED indicates burning;
- Yellow LED indicates clock-signal; and
- Green LED indicates power supply!
Lastly, hope you’ll have a great moment with this PIC-programmer!
